Narrator Kathleen Early brings to life Slaughter’s compelling story of past and present violence and its impact on sisters Charlie and Sam. Using pitch, tone, and pace, Early contrasts the personalities of the two sisters as teenagers and then, 28 years later, as adults. She excels at projecting the larger-than-life character of their father, Rusty. The way Early enacts the dramatic stories makes the listener feel the complex pain and confusion brought on by acts of revenge and love. She selectively uses regional accents to enliven an array of secondary characters. Listeners will be totally engaged with this account of a family and challenged to consider that there are many sides to a story. E.Q.
